MINIATURE ZAPPLER WITH TRAVELLING CASE
The spring-driven movement is constructed between brass bars and consists of a going train and alarm. The going train has anchor escapement with a short front pendulum. The clock is wound through a hole in the front of the travelling case.
The beautifully shaped and engraved brass front plate has a white dial with a black Roman chapter ring with five-minute and minute divisions. The time is indicated by a pair of blued steel hands.
The brass case is embellished with elegant engravings and rests on a base in the travelling case.
The outside of the original wooden travelling case is covered with pink velvet. There is a catch on the top to lock the two hinged sides. The fixed key is slightly countersunk in the front.
